Took a trolley to see this landmark! The guide took us up to the seats and we took pics with the stage as a backdrop. So many legends have graced this stage - it was surreal!

You don't need a tour bus. Hike, take a bike or taxi up Mulholland Drive to the Jerome C. Daniel Overlook over the Hollywood Bowl. "The most easterly of the Conservancy's Scenic Overlooks, the Hollywood Bowl Scenic Overlook is situated to provide a beautiful view of the Hollywood Bowl Amphitheater, downtown Los Angeles, and, on a clear day, the ocean...

A must visit spot for a night view of the LA area. It was absolutely beautiful! Make the visit! The travel to get to the overlook is an attraction in itself.

This overlook has a great view of the city. You are facing the back of the bowl so you see the seats and probably can hear the music but will not be able to see anything in the Bowl itself.

We went there on Easter, it had a great view to see around and Hollywood sign. It was a sunny day and I Enjoyed it. There were other people gathering for the Easter and there was music and so on, which made a memorable day.

It could be awesome in sunny day. But we came there with little rain, as a result, the whole Los Angeles city was covered by rain and fog. But it is still good. But I think it should be better with better maintaining.

This is a great overlook to see LA and the Hollywood sign. There are several overlooks along Mulholland and this is the furthest east. It was great for a quick look and some pictures. The drawback is that there are fewer than 10 parking spaces so we picked a time and day when we thought it wouldn't be busy.

We were at the scenic overlook this morning. The views are amazing and anybody visiting the Hollywood area should stop by to take pictures. You will not be disappointed that you took the 15-30 minutes to do so. The only negative was that it was a little cloudy so the visibility was not great. However, we were still able to... More

I took a Grand City Tour of LA by Starline. This was the first in their itinerary. The "bowl" refers to the shape of the concave hillside, the amphitheater is carved into. The Bowl is the home of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. It is a modern and largest amphitheater in US with... More
